  (UNITED STATES, 8/3/2022)

Blue Star Foods Corp. (NASDAQ: BSFC), an integrated Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) sustainable seafood company with a focus on Recirculatory Aquaculture Systems (RAS), has announced that its wholly-owned RAS subsidiary, Taste of BC Aquafarms, Inc. has successfully achieved recent developments and released key operating performance metrics for the first half of 2022.

Recent Developments and Near-Term Milestones.

Possible Introduction of New Pacific Salmon Species

  • In Q2-2022, Taste of BC hatched its first batch of Chinook Salmon. To date, the fish are performing well in growth trials with good FCR, growth and very low mortality. The Company intends to raise them to an average size of 3kg as it evaluates the potential of future species diversification within the Pacific Salmon family.

Taste of BC Operating Performance Metrics for First Half of 2022.

Average Harvest Downgrade Percentage

  • Over the last 6 months, ending June 30, 2021, the total harvest downgrade percentage was 1.3%. This metric measures the number of fish at harvest that we did not bring to market at full price in the last stage of the lifecycle.

Average Feed Conversion Ratio

  • Over the last 6 months, ending June 30, 2021, we have achieved a feed conversion ratio (FCR) of 1.18KG Feed/Kg, versus the industry standard for open net FCR of 1.2 KG feed/kg(1).

(1) Certain industry statistics including Open net Atlantic salmon average harvest weight and industry standard for open net FCR were obtained from the Mowi Handbook (2019).

Ben Atkinson, the President of Taste of BC added, “The first six months of 2022 have been focused on increasing standing biomass within our pilot facility as we continue to limit test system capabilities. At the end of Q2-2022, we finished with a standing biomass of 40MT in our facility, which was originally designed for 27MT, without compromising water conditions or fish performance. We are extremely pleased with the capabilities of our pilot system which provides a solid foundation upon which we are designing our forthcoming expansion.”
